SMST 2015 will focus on Nitinol, but this year will include sessions on other shape memory alloys and shape memory polymers. Technical sessions will explore fundamental issues still facing the industry, in the areas of fatigue, corrosion, and modeling and multiple sessions concerning industrial and medical applications.
Message from Dr. Neil Morgan, Cochair with Dr. Keith Melton of SMST 2015:
"For the first time, SMST 2015 will be held in centrally located Britain in an exclusive country manor within 440 acres of quintessential English parkland, Heythrop Park! I am honored to co-chair SMST 2015 with Dr. Keith Melton, a pioneer of Nitinol. I am looking forward to hearing Keith's coauthored plenary paper with Dr. Tom Duerig concerning the history of our industry.
Heythrop Park is close to University of Oxford so we have programmed free time during the conference to give you the opportunity to tour the Oxford college. Spring will be in full bloom, so bring an umbrella, just in case!"
SMST brings together a diverse group of worldwide experts active in the field of shape memory and superelastic materials. With a focus on Nitinol applications, sessions will deliver content relevant to those working on medical devices and other high-value applications, including actuators for aerospace and automotive.
